You’re looking for something fun and interesting to do, that will keep you active and in shape. You don’t necessarily want to hit the weight room, in fact, it’s not really your thing or you just want to take a break from it for a while. So, what are your options?
One option can be joining a local dance class in your area. You may not know the science or technical language behind every move but one thing’s for sure, you will be active, having fun and staying fit. Look for a dance class that speaks to you, and that you will find enjoyable.
Salsa dancing is a fabulous alternative. Participating in a Salsa class is a great way to meet new people and socialize. We sometimes end up in the weight room or on the cardio machines by ourselves during a workout, but with Salsa you will always have a partner or group of people to mingle with. Salsa is an exciting, sexy and extremely enjoyable way to increase your social circle.
Salsa is a Latin dance form with Cuban Son and Afro-Cuban decent (especially the ramba). The sound and upbeat lure of salsa music is famous for getting people energized and moving. Salsa music is known to get people up, onto their feet and moving regardless of background, color or ability. Salsa is a celebration of life and you don’t have to be of Latin American or Cuban lineage to enjoy the swing of the instrumentals that will eventually make its way to your hips.
Taking part in a Salsa class also comes with added benefits: increased flexibility, an increased sense of well being, an increase in your level of confidence, an increase in strength, an increase in cardiovascular endurance and an increase in core strength and awareness.
So don’t hesitate, try a little Salsa today.
